The blood, sweat and tears that went into creating this seemingly simple jigsaw puzzle game aren’t evident, but our jigsaw puzzle game goes where few Flash jigsaw puzzle games fear to tread!

Instead of clicking and dragging the pieces onto a static mat in the middle of the screen, the puzzle can be assembled anywhere on the screen. Clusters of pieces can be fitted together and rotated, giving the player much more freedom and control than mat puzzles with non-rotating pieces.

Clustering Pieces

Jigsaw!’s pieces can be clustered, and clusters can be moved and rotated independently

Every image in the gallery is dynamically loaded and cut into a jigsaw puzzle. The game is architected so that new images need only to be dropped into a folder alongside the game. Like magic, they appear in the image gallery and are automatically cut into small, medium or large pieces depending on player preference.

Finally, any online image can be brought into the app. Click the Custom gallery image and copy/paste the URL for your favourite online picture. The program supports most common image formats.

    Thanks, Carl! We actually received a scientific research & economic development grant from the goverment for the work we did on this game. There was a lot of tricky workaround stuff needed to circumvent Flash security sandbox restrictions.
